Flash Player is bundled with IE on Windows 8.x by Microsoft. To update the IE Flash Player you need to run Windows Update.
Pat: Thanks for the guidance--I'm sure I knew that at some point, but after a week of trying to get Windows Update to install the latest for IE and Flash Player, I'm a bit loopy. If you--or all of you--were offended by my post, you have my humble apology. It was not intended to offend, just in a wacky state of mind. (But I do sometimes wish everyone, everywhere, would check their sense of humor now and then--it's my lifesaver.)
Anyway.. As said, the problem is that I can't get WU to install your IE and FPlayer updates. The internal troubleshooter tells me it has fixed all problems, but obviously it has not. If you have any guidance for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Not offended at all; I am always grateful when people post as much information as possible.
Good luck with the WU!
You'll need to contact Microsoft for support with the Windows Update issue. We have zero control over that process.
